For further support for issues that can’t be addressed within groups/team structure we offer six types of formal appointments at Renewal.
Prayer ministry and Spiritual mentoring
Usually, a one off session to offer prayer and reflection from the Bible – considering longer term or deeper issues that may be affecting a person’s lifestyle or spiritual walk.
To help you reflect on how scripture impacts your lives and choices and help you think biblically about the circumstances and situations you are in, and to offer prayer support as needed. These are conducted by Collective/Team Pastors, Pastoral Team Leaders and Staff Pastors. These appointments are supervised by the pastor for pastoral care.
Relationship Support mentoring
Relationship support team offer couple mentoring for those who dating with intent to marry, engaged, cohabiting and married couples. We use an online assessment tool called SYMBIS, which costs £80 per couple for the assessment and then 5-8 mentoring sessions. Sponsorship is available if needed.
A safe space for people who need someone to listen and support as you seek to make sense of what is happening in your life. These are conducted by volunteers who have at least a level 3 qualification in Counselling Skills. Progress and suitability is reviewed every six sessions before continuing. These appointments are supervised by Therapy service supervisor.
A specialised way of listening, responding and building relationships based on therapeutic theory and expertise that is used to help you enchain your wellbeing. These are conducted by trainees and qualified counsellors, who come from both Renewal and also the wider community. Progress and suitability is reviewed every six sessions before continuing. These appointments are supervised by Therapy service supervisor.
These are for people who have complex mental or physical health needs and will enable a structured plan to be put in place to ensure you can fully access everything at Renewal. These are conducted by health professionals who volunteer their time, and are usually a one off appointment.
